Rosenkranz K-10001.

The first 1000 tonne crane in the world was this Rosenkranz K-10001. On this page are more pictures from the crane at Sindorf.
The crane is actually build by many makes: The cranehouse was build by Demag, the boom by Krupp, the axle-lines came from Scheurle and the tractor from Faun.

The crane started its life at the legendary german company Rosenkranz.

Later the crane was sold at Kronschnabel, from which I don't have any pictures. After some jobs the crane was sold again, to Schmidbauer where it was used to build a powerplant from 1985 until 1990.

AKS overhauled the crane and it was sold to the UK-based crane empire of Baldwins in the early 90-ies. At Baldwins the cabin was removed from between the boom and a cabin from a LTM 1800 was placed at the side. The Faun-tractor was scraped and in the last year the crane was pulled by a FTF truck.

One of the most memorable jobs at Baldwins, lifting of a complete steel pyramide.

After Baldwins went bankrupt the crane was bought by the Dutch cranedealer Sindorf where it was overhauled once again.

Once again a new company was found for this magnificent crane, a company in Italiy. Here the crane will lift tanks/reactors in and out of ships.

My thanks go to everyone who contribute photo's.
